Year 16, Day 378 (Mitster & Orlas Explore Desert Facility!)

Orlas and Mitster are tasked with checking out the new airfield! It’s a good opprotunity to try out the new Munar Rover as well!

“Let’s see what those towers in the distance are!”
-Orlas

“They look like water… or fuel towers. Oh hey! Is that a launch pad?”
-Mitster

“It sure is! This place is in good condition. With power and some other utilities KSEA will be able to use this for launches!”
-Orlas

Orlas and Mitster drive over to several hangars near the launch pad.

“Hey – this rover doesn’t handle too bad! This sand is a decent analog for the Munar regolith! Just have to slow down before turns!”
-Mitster

“Whew! It’s stuffy here! I’m taking off my space suit!
-Mitster

Orlas inspects the hangars for clues as to their origin…

“Nobody’s using all this infrastructure! There’s tons of equipment inside!”
-Mitster

“Before we go any further we better deploy the solar panel – this electric engine is getting drained pretty fast by all this driving!”
-Orlas

“OK… there’s a launchpad and facilities… let’s see what’s over by the runway! When I landed here the other day I noticed a lot of buildings!”
-Mitster

“”A big tower! And a bent ‘ol flagpole!
-Mitster

“This looks like an old office building. Nothing in here!”
-Mitster

“Looks like there’s air conditioning though… that’s nice!”
-Mitster

“It’s no VAB… but there’s a lot of lifters and equipment out here. Small rockets and planes should have no problem being built and launched out here!”
-Orlas

“And there’s our power! Fully functioning windmills! Let’s report back to Gene!”
-Mitster
